The Philippines has many killmachines ranging from shitty dangerous tricycles with really old drivers with blindness to superfast drag-racing buses that would make you inside-out after the ride. Here are some examples:

It is a motorcycle strapped to a carridge or something using superglue and duct tape. They are the cheapest form of public transportation in the Philippines and are totally safe with a death rate of 9000% across the country. They are found in every village, town, city, and backwater shithole with varying designs from dilapidated bikes with a homemade crappy engine to overkill machines that turn you inside-out. Word of Advice: Do not ride a tricycle or else you will be raped, straight or gay!

It is a bike similar in design to the tricycle only it has an umbrella that rains dirt and cowshit and doesn't protect you from the rain. It is mainly found in the mouth of a road leading to a village or a barangay as they call it in the philippines. They are usually driven by a boy who has some kind of leg injury and is useless as shit, a drug-addicted middle aged man with a f***ed up brain, to a blind-ass old guy wearing nothin but a gay gangsta cap. Word of Advice: Do not ride a trisikad or else you will be dumped into a ditch.

It is a large jeep with a top speed of 9000 Miles per hour and a high rate of accidents of about 5000%. It is found mainly in the towns or cities and are usually colored in bright designs. A single jeepney has the capacity of 1000% and are essential in the life of a city in the philippines. Occasional Jeepney Passengers are usually half naked men, poor ugly bitches, students with a mental capacity of a broken brick, and workers who are payed only 10 pesos per year which is equivalent to about 1/4th of a dollar. Word of Advice: Do not ride a jeepney or else you will end up in a wreckage site along with pieces of s***.

It is a road vehicle designed for carrying passengers around the city and idiotic drag-racing that will certainly end in a car accident. They are found in towns and cities in the philippines and are essential to the Tourism Industry. Filipino Bus Drivers are men with no highschool education and frequently get dragged into a drag-race by another Bus Driver who called him "Putanginamo" which means F*** you in Tagalog or whatever voodoo gibberish they got in there. Word of Advice: Do not ride a bus in the philippines or else you will end up in a wreckage of about 3-4 buses.

And those are the Vehicles of the Philippines. Also another Word of Advice: Never go to the Philippines or you'll regret it!

I have never been to PH though I like the country. There are several key issues though.

1.PH is located in a region with many historically strong countries. This does not mean China alone. I mean China Japan South Korea Vietnam Malaysia Indonesia etc. In order not to be outcompeted by the West and all nations above PH really has to rise up fast...

2.PH is not a nation state, unlike France or Vietnam. Promoting Tagalog (or any other Austronesian language native to the PH) should have helped a lot but PH is still not homogeneous, unlike South Korea and Japan.

3.PH is in the tropical region. This means more diseases. At least Filipinos eat rice more than cassava which is both toxic and lacks protein. This is good..but hot weather implies illness. There are just more health issues in a tropical country compared to a temperate one.

4.PH is a country consisting of more than 7000 islands. It takes several days for an ordinary Filipino to go from the south to the north of the country by ferry..compared to Vietnam which is not a lot of islands and hence has roads from the Chinese border to beyond Saigon. There are not enough bridges in PH either..unlike Japan whose major islands are ALL connected by bridges or tunnels...

An outsider that has looked into the region before

Feline, this entire post is a mixture of sarcasm, criticism, and racism.

No it is certainly not racism..especially if you know my identity.

I just said what I have observed as an outsider. Certainly no sarcasm or mocking is intended. All people are equal but not all geography are equal. Different places have different challenges. You do not expect mangoes to be a traditional cuisine of Russia..this is just climate since mangoes should not even grow outdoors in most if not all of Russia.

Absolutely no offense intended. We can not change the past but we can change the future..I sincerely wish you guys have bridges connecting Cebu and Bohol for example. (BTW people are trying to get this built hope more will come) What I said are issues I read on Wikipedia or my understanding of them. That's it. All are "natural or historical issues" but certainly not criticism. They can be overcome over time.

No, he means that he intended to be sarcastic not you, I think that he was upset by your serious answer.

I like Filipinos, have talked to Filipinos before both online and IRL and have even donated to the Philippines before.

I play Big PH map for some reason.

In fact the Philippines already has gotten a lot better: it started as a state with borders defined only by a colonial entity which makes the nation inherently prone to lack of unity. There was no national language either. Now Filipinos are at least identifying themselves as Filipinos and almost all can speak Tagalog. That's a significant improvement. Issues remain though..that point 4 is serious. Yes it is a natural issue every island country has but it needs a solution.
